A new senior 'A' hockey league aims to ice teams across Ontario.

Led by the Cornwall Prowlers, who played last season in the LHSAO, the Eastern Ontario Senior A Hockey League has been formed, with plans to begin play this fall.

In addition to a team in Cornwall, squads are expected to be iced in Maxville (the Maniacs), Kinburn, Kingston, and Kanata. There's also interest in Vankleek Hill and Eganville.

Organizers are aiming for a six to eight-team league for the inaugural season.  A league meeting is scheduled for June 23, with a player showcase booked for August 10.

Last weekend, the inaugural season for the Cornwall senior 'A' Prowlers hockey team got underway, with the squad playing to a 13-6 victory in Cumberland.

Alexandria's Pierre Luc Sabourin chalked up three assists in the contest, while Williamstown's Jesse Fontaine picked up one. Three players – Jonathan Labelle, Dominic Leveille, and Brandon Gilmour – had hat tricks. Other goals were notched by Chris Rutley, Sebastien Thinel, Thomas McRae, and Brody Taylor.

Josh Loney backstopped the win in net, facing 46 shots. The Prowlers fired a whopping 65 shots on the Bandits goal.

The team's next game will see the Prowlers skating on home ice, Saturday, Oct. 20, at 8 p.m., at Cornwall's multi-sport complex. The Comets, from Fort Coulange, Quebec, will provide the opposition.

“I’ll see you next year,” North Glengarry Mayor Chris McDonell promised Norman Moore, who celebrated his 101st birthday October 27.

The oldest resident of The Palace retirement home in Alexandria still drives, making regular trips to the Dairy Queen in Lancaster. In addition to receiving best wishes from the municipality, Mr. Moore, who has two children, Richard and Marlene, and two grandsons, received best wishes from the Queen and Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne.
